GoFundMe Charity supports check payouts through both PayPal Giving Fund and WePay. To change the mailing address for your charity's checks, please refer to the steps below, which differ for each payment partner.
PayPal Giving Fund
For unenrolled charities, PayPal Giving Fund sends checks to the main address listed in the charity's GuideStar profile. Address changes in GuideStar can take up to 45 days to update on PayPal Giving Fund's side. However, if you are the administrator of a charity account on GoFundMe Charity and need a check reissued to a different address, please contact us, so we can expedite that for you.
Alternatively, the fastest way to receive payouts from PayPal Giving Fund is to enroll, which allows PayPal Giving Fund to send money directly to the charity's PayPal account and gives the charity access to payout history and donor data. Enrolled charities can also choose to receive check payouts. Please refer to this article for steps to enroll in PayPal Giving Fund.
Please follow the steps below to update your check mailing address through WePay:
- Sign into WePay at https://www.wepay.com/login.
- Select Settings > Settlement Details
- Select the blue 'Change' button and follow the prompts to add a new address and save.
If WePay already sent a check to the incorrect address, please update the address and then contact us, so we can cancel that check and reissue it the new address.
